Cusken believes in taking care of the planet while doing business and that is why we are sourcing different ways to go greener as possible. Toshiba Carbon Zero Scheme is one of those ways.
“The Earth is what we all have in common.”—Wendell Berry
Carbon offsetting is a way to reduce the amount of CO2 released into the atmosphere by balancing or cancelling out the amount of these gases through participation in environmental projects.
“At Toshiba we are committed to the environment and with the help of the carbon offsetting experts at CO2balance we have devised a scheme with which we can offset the carbon footprint of your Toshiba system.
We not only include the CO2 that is being emitted during the production and transportation of our products, but throughout the entire product life-cycle. Therefore, depending on the scheme in place, we factor in a set number of printed pages to also cover any ongoing environmental impact. Through this process the emissions are balanced to become “Carbon Zero”, which allows for positive printing and copying with no detrimental effect on the environment.”
Available schemes under Toshiba’s Carbon Zero Scheme programme may vary from country to country and depend on the Toshiba system you purchased. But what all schemes have in common is the support of Gold Standard projects around the world to compensate for the greenhouse gas emissions.
Care for the Planet
Caring for the environment and its resources is part of Toshiba’s tradition. To contribute to a more sustainable society and as a globally operating enterprise, Toshiba gives highest priority to conserving and protecting resources during every part of a product’s life-cycle.
They take measures to conserve energy and resources and reduce the burden on the environment. At the same time understanding the needs of a customer. Therefore, they make sure that products and solutions not only have an ecological benefit, but also impact the economy and efficiency of businesses.
The projects do more than just compensate for the carbon emission – they create jobs for local people and involve them in the data collection and the education of their peers.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
The idea of a circular economy is based on a very simple fact. We live on a planet with limited resources – which includes the ability of our environment to deal with pollution. If resources are limited and emissions need to be avoided, then growth cannot remain unlimited. The impending global warming and its consequences force all of us in industry, politics and society in general to act.
This is why Toshiba offers solutions for the sustainable use of resources.
Toshiba products and services offer many opportunities and innovations towards the reuse of materials. The number of materials used is kept as low as possible, are recyclable and can be easily dismantled. Energy efficient product design, service that covers the entire life cycle of a product and the avoidance of packaging waste are what make up the circular 3R-Design: Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
